Identity of the Mole Host Revealed


ABC has tapped Jon Kelley as the host for its new version of “The Mole,” which the network is planning on premiering Monday, May 26 at 10pm ET.

Kelley, a former weekend anchor for “Extra,” replaces original “Mole” host Anderson Cooper, who hosted two regular editions of the show and is now a key CNN primetime anchor, and Ahmad Rashad, who hosted two celebrity editions.

Variety says “The Mole” will likely be paired with another ABC reality revival, “The Bachelorette,” which is being eyed for a possible May 19 debut.

“The Mole” — from Stone & Co. — has been on an extended hiatus since 2004.
